Get friendly date String

hi all,

 

i am trying to get Sunday 15th August from 2010-08-15. I have split the date and everything is working without error when i call myDate.toString(); It just doens't give the desired result.

 

Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
calendar.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, Integer.parseInt(second[2]));
calendar.set(Calendar.MONTH, Integer.parseInt(second[1]));
calendar.set(Calendar.YEAR, Integer.parseInt(second[0]));

Date myDate = calendar.getTime();

 

Can anyone tell me what i need to do next to get sunday 15th august?

 

Thanks

 

Alex

Re: Get friendly date String

hi, thanks for your help.
